Definitive Proof That All Too Well & Out Of The Woods Are The SAME Song

Looking at it now it all seemed so simple. Taylor Swift is a fan of upstate romances that end in minor car accidents....

Well there is one difference...

Splash (2)

All Too Well is about Taylor's romance with sexy actor Jake Gyllenhaal, who she date circa 2011, while Out of the Woods is allegedly about her brief dalliance with Harry Styles in late 2012.

Here goes!

The songs start off in comfortable places

First things first, both songs start in a domestic setting.

ATW: 'I walked through the door with you

The air was cold but something 'bout it felt like home somehow'

OOTW: 'We were lying on your couch, I remember'

The colour scheme


Just one color comes to mind for romance with Taylor. #Lovinghimwasred

ATW: 'Your cheeks were turning red.'

OOTW: 'The rest of the world was black and white/But we were in screaming color.'

Lots of Autumn imagery/rural locations


Leaves, trees; THE SIMILARITIES.

ATW: 'We're singing in a car getting lost Upstate/The autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place.'

OOTW: 'But the monsters turned out to be just trees... Are we out of the woods?'

A distinct lack of future

Tay Tay knows these romances are doomed....

ATW: 'Maybe I asked for too much/But maybe this thing was a masterpiece ´til you tore it all up.'

OOTW: 'We were built to fall apart, then fall back together/Baby like we stood a chance.'

Both involve minor/potential car accidents

Jake nearly crashes; Harry actually does. Taylor sure likes em reckless.

ATW: 'You almost ran the red cause you were looking over at me'

OOTW: 'Remember when you hit the brakes too soon/Twenty stitches in a hospital room'

Exchanged neck accessories

We all know swapping accessories means you're going steady.

ATW: 'But you keep my old scarf from that very first week/Cause it reminds you of innocence and it smells like me'

OOTW: 'Your necklace hanging from my neck'

Dancing in inconvenient places


Why dance in a club when you could do it at home?

ATW: 'We're dancing round the kitchen in the refrigerator light'

OOTW: 'When we decided/To move the furniture so we could dance'

There's no happy ending....

ATW: 'Cause there we are again when I loved you so/Back before you lost the one real thing you've ever known'

OOTW: 'Remember when we couldn't take the heat/I walked out, I said, I'm setting you free'
